I love the church licking guitar style popular in the Bluegrass, Country, and Folk genres and I love puns so I called it "Church Lickin' Good".
I wanted a true and clean recording on this song so I used two of my best microphones and they both did a good job. For the first time I used the Superlux in omni mode. The AT4054 mic was at the camera on my left pointing across the runway to the viewer's left. The Superlux was on a floor stand below me and to my left in the far shot providing the right channel from the viewer's point of view. I like the way both mics sound but what I really like about this arrangement is how the stereo image moves as I move, opens up when I back into the cardiod pattern of the AT4054 and then gets louder and sweeps right as I back up over the Superlux set to omni. This creates a dynamic stereo image that tracks my movement and builds throughout the recording.
